The Sixers have had to deal with a tougher schedule and actually have two more wins than the Lakers.

Sixers played the Rockets and Warriors twice. They won 3 games out of 4. They have a tougher schedule. Meanwhile, the lakers played the Suns I think three times already

Sixers have only played one b2b while the Lakers have played 3 and it's not like they've beat more Playoff teams than the Lakers have, Sixers impressive wins are against the Rockets and Pistons, Lakers beat the Wizards, Pistons and Grizzlies. Philly has shooters though so I think that gives them a big edge because while the Lakers are much better on D they severely lack 3PT shooting, there's no reason for us to be 6 - 10 while we have the 4th ranked defense.

Simple answer. The picks that the Lakers selected aren't as good as the Sixers' picks. Embiid & Simmons >>> Randle, Ingram, and Ball

Kuzma's probably their brightest spot on the roster right now

Kuzma is legit, so is Ingram, Randle & Nance. We just didn't have the higher picks those years when they picked Simmons & Embiid so it is what it is. Embiid was injured so he fell in Philly's lap, Simmons wanted to play in LA but we didn't have the pick (said he would play for the Lakers coming into the draft).

Lakers have been plagued by poor management similar to Chi/NY in the 00s. LAL turned to new management so it will take some time to fairly evaluate their plan. The summer of 18 is a big opportunity for the new team and we will see if they can attract star talent, so far everything has been set up with 18 in mind.

What killed LA was not finding a young star in Kobe latter years so that young star could attain what being a Laker is and until they get pieces that can thrive under that pressure it will be difficult for the Lakers.

we had. JLin & DLo. somehow byron scott drove Lin out the town and messed up with DLO' development.
then we had Mozgov/Deng's ridiculous contract.
somehow jylen brown is playing better than ingram so far.
somehow lonzo ball starts to miss jump shots..

I wouldn’t say LAs management was as poor as New York’s. Dolan is legendarily bad.

Trash organization needs to be moved to Seattle or Vancover, where they might actually be relevant
This is very true. No denying this.

The Lakers are your typical spoilt, rich kid who grew up having everything handed to him he doesn't know how to earn something for himself. The organization has basically rested on its laurels and think the organization's past rings and history will land them the free agent they need. They've basically depended on the organization's glamour and location to get them out of this mess instead of thinking and working to get them out of it. The fans are the same, always entitled, thinking the name "Lakers" alone will get them everything handed on a silver platter. The brilliant minds who built the Showtime Lakers and the dynasty are not there anymore and in their place are people who are not really that brilliant.
The whole organization is enamored with flash instead of substance, that's why they keep hiring (and drafting) people of the same caliber. Hinkie is there for the taking. Why not take him and let him build The Process 2.0?
